My iPhone Speedometer


The speedometer in my Jag is out of commission and it would cost me at least $500 to get it replaced.

But wait, there is a $0.99 (that's right .99 cents!) app for the iPhone 3G called "Speed" that can be used as a speedometer and it works! No wiring required, just open the app. on the iPhone and drive away. The GPS satellites will clock the car's speed past 5 mph. GPS is amazing but even more amazing is the 99 cents app. I would have paid $50 for it.

This will do for now.

Eucharistic Ministry Work Today



Evelyn and I did our very first Eucharistic work at Christ The King today - both of us, side by side, administering the host (Body of Christ) to communicants. What an awesome experience.

Picture of Evelyn helping out at the Sacristi room after the service.

In two weeks, I will also start a weekly bible study at this church. That would be awesome.

"All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work" 2 Timothy 2:16-17

Just Another Lazy Sunday



Nothing like a good nap outside following church service and great 1,000 calorie halo halo at the Paradise Store.

Other picture is Mele on her training leash so she can join her dog family outside. She's pissed...

My First Few Days as Retiree



Of course, at my garden. Just planted a new addition, called Clerodendron but I'll call it my lipstick flower because at a distance, it looks like this awesome white flower has a "lipstick"

EDIT: After a quick Google Search, this Clerodendron plant is more commonly known as the Bleeding Heart Vine. No it's not the popular Bleeding Heart flower, not even a cultivar of that line but this is a vine and a tropical plant that has its origins in West Africa. Nonetheless, I still like to call it my "lipstick flower"
